From the first moment of contact with Valerie at Kenyon Westbourne Grove I felt assured that I had a guiding hand through the process at a time when my mind and thoughts were considerably distracted. Every call was returned. Every query answered. And a calm voice on the other end of the phone was very welcome when it was not quite so at my end! Sasch was very much in touch , structuring and checking exactly the timetable and giving careful attention to the additional detail we added at the crematorium. Respectful, helpful and reassuring. I still think the funeral arena is overpriced in many respects but my thoughts on this have changed in having our experience with Valerie and Sasch guide my family through this.

From start to finish, from the moment my husband passed away, the staff at JH Kenyon were exemplary! The wonderful Valerie guided us gently through the initially daunting process with incredible care, sensitivity and kindness. The professionalism of all the staff including Marion, Fabio and all the pall bearers, the florists and the printers ensured we gave my husband the most beautiful, and dignified funeral we could have wished for. I cannot thank them enough.

My sister Robyn and I were so very touched by the incredible service we received from J h Kenyon/J Hemp Funeral Directors when our Mum passed away end of July this year. The Funeral Service Arranger Valerie Orpen and Funeral Director Philip Smyth made us feel so very welcome and at ease and we felt a genuine connection with them instantly as they knew just the right approach and are so obviously naturally wonderful people it made us feel that Mum was in the best hands. Very informative, very thorough and very well organised every step of the way; just what you need when dealing with such a monumental loss with so much to sort. Even a follow up to touch base after. To Valerie and Philip this is not just their profession; they are 100% invested in helping and gently guiding you to process, grieve, even laugh and celebrate the wonderful life and memory of someone you treasure. Also the little individual touches here and there made it all the more special. We are forever grateful, thank you, x
